Magnum. 150 year Anniversary bottling Charles Krug. Drank really beautifully. Classically Napa.

Dark fruit, cassis, vanilla. Staple Napa Cabernet with enough backbone to keep it from being flabby.

The weakest of the set of three, still viable but a little to celeric and slight decay.

By the glass, so a previously opened bottle. Obviously been open. Light with good fruit. Small oak. Think it’s been open too long.

Mild, fruity, slight tannin. Great table wine for a good price.
